Humbert

by John Burningham
 

Humbert the horse loves working with Mr. Firkin, the scrap-iron dealer, but he envies the grand life of the brewery horses who pull the Lord Mayor’s golden coach. As the day of the Lord Master’s Show begins, Humbert watches from the sidelines, feeling small and shabby—until a disaster suddenly places him center stage.
